E. K. Jones of the Pioneer Hard

by him some time ago, which stated
that F. E. Hague, late of the Pioneer

The suggestion made by a Rose

from that city to Coos Bay has met
with much approval. A line over
that route to this place would be a
vast help to'both communities. Coos

electric lines are what will make pos

There must be an outlet for the
Interior so rich In resource. All of
the country behind us need not look

Francisco, but must have a nearer
port. Here Is Coos Bay, the natural
center for shipping, which is needed
by the Interior of the state, and rail
road facilities are what will make the
connection. It Is only a question of
a few years until this will be the
point to which the shipping is direct

possibilities of what this will mean in
the future can scarcely be realized
This proposed electric lino from
Rosoburg would be a big step to
bring about the connection which
must ultimately come. It would help
Rosrburg In bringing her In close
touch with a seaport, and would help
to make Coos Bay the outlet for the
Roseburg district, not to speak of the
benefits to the Intermediate country.

road will become a reality.
